Mabel's First Year Of Preschool Completed

That's right. Mabel has finished her first year of Preschool!

I am so incredibly proud of her and how much she has grown within this short time. I think it was definitely the right decision to send her as soon as she turned 2 because she has gained so much independance and has learned an incredible amount.

It was noted that Mabel was behind in her speech and language skills, but with the help of the preschool, she has improved a lot. I think it really helps that she just loves being there. She enjoys painting, cooking, reading, the mud kitchen, sandpit, being outside and playing with all her friends. It is adorable seeing it.

She Can Walk..........Finally!

Wow, this has been such a long time coming for me but at 17 months old Martha can now walk. My little baby is officially a Toddler.

A few weeks ago Martha decided that walking was actually a good thing! To be honest, I wondered if she ever would get the hang of it, but each week she has been getting stronger and more confident with it.

Meal Plan 17/07/17

This weeks shop came in at under £50 again because I had another deal from Ocado to get £10 off a £50 shop. I do love deals like this and it does save me money if I am careful with the items that I buy. I think I might continue with Ocado until the free delivery runs out in September because it just makes things that bit easier.

Meal Plan:

Stuffed Pasta and Homemade Sauce

Beef and Vegetable Casserole

Chicken topped with Mozzarella, Basil, Tomato

Vegetable Curry with Homemade Naan

Baked Potato topped with Leftover Casserole

Sweetcorn and Courgette Fritters with Carrot Chips

Pasta Pesto with Mushrooms and toasted Walnuts

Summer Activities For Toddlers


 This Summer is more exciting for me because I now have two toddlers who like nothing better to do than to be playing outside and using their imagination. Here are 4 activities that we have been and will be continuing to do over the Summer.

Meal Plan 10/07/17

Again I did my shop from Ocado because I had a voucher to get £10 off a £50 shop, plus free delivery. I didn't need a lot of things so I bumped up the price by buying 2 Jumbo boxes of Pampers for £18, instead of £12 each. I have a nice simple week with lots of our favourite meals and today I will be making a yummy cake with the girls. 

Meal Plan:

Soup and Baguette

Spaghetti Bolognese

Gammon, Egg and Chips

Honey Mustard Chicken with Rice

Pizza, Chips and Garlic Bread

Chilli Con Carne with Rice

Baked Potato and Leftover Chilli
